HAVE NOT BEEN UP TOO MUCH;

Good afternoon ladies,,, I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful week so far. We have been having some wonderful days here with a bit of thunderstorms,,, which I don’t mind. I have been not feeling well the past few day’s, so I have not been around much today is a pretty good one so I thought I had better do a post before you all forget about me…. lol  Since I am having a good day,,, I thought I would do some decorating and making things look more homey…. My sweet D.H. hung my small book shelf so I could set out some of my Tea Cups… and a few prints….

I have also been doing some planting out on our balcony, still have a ways to go but it will get there. I dug up one of my miniature Yellow Roses to bring back, she seems to love it here.. Over the weekend we went to find a few flowers to set out.. I will just keep quite and show you what I have done….

Hi Alaura! I've missed you! So sorry to hear you've not been feeling well. Love to see your decorating. The little shelf is so cute and you have some very beautiful tea cups! Now your flowers look so nice and it seems you have a nice view from your balcony!
Alaura, you and your family have been in my prayers and I hope your heart is not acheing as much.
Be a sweetie,

Hello, Alaura,
I always enjoy my visits with you, dear friend! I love how you have decorated your shelf. I have a real weakness for pretty teacups and yours are very pretty!! I like how you are putting plants on your balcony, too. The hydrangea is gorgeous. Your balcony will look great with the planters hanging from the railings, great idea. Thank you for visiting me and your always kind comments! Love and blessings~ Vicki
